Tunnels is a subterranean fiction novel by British authors Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams. The story follows Will Burrows, a 14-year-old 'archaeologist', who stumbles upon an underground civilization called The Colony. Will and friend Chester flee The Colony and set out to find Will's father, in the Deeps, a place even deeper in the Earth than The Colony.

Roderick Gordon (born November 1960) is the author of Tunnels, a bestselling children's book and the first book in the Tunnels series by Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams. Born in November 1960, Roderick grew up in Highgate, North London. Chronically shy throughout his childhood, he sought refuge in drawing and writing, and whilst at the Hall School, Hampstead, he had his first short story published in the school magazine, at the age of twelve.

Brian Williams grew up in Zambia until moving to Liverpool with his family in the seventies. He presently lives in Hackney. Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams co-wrote and self-published The Highfield Mole in March 2005.

Originally self-published as The Highfield Mole, the book has now amassed impressive advances and foreign-rights deals. I have little doubt that Gordon and Williams will soon have legions of fans. Tunnels is just the beginning. Philip Ardagh's Eddie Dickens trilogy is published by Faber. Although it seems unlikely that any book in the history of the universe will ever reach the truly dizzying heights that Potter has, Tunnels does have the potential to be the start of something big (even if the start of the book itself might have benefited from being somewhat shorter). In Tunnels, 14-year-old Will Burrows and his friend Chester Rawls discover an underground city.

Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams are rather like an old married couple at a tea party. The Highfield Mole was originally intended to be a screenplay but Gordon and Williams backed away from that idea when they realized they would lose control of the creative process if a movie company took on the story. We tended to work at night, said Williams. Gordon added: It was amazing see the book in bookshop windows, and seeing someone reading the book on the train was amazing.

Comments to eBook The Highfield Mole

Few books that I have read were as compelling and addictive as this one, and with 3 more published in the series and a 5th on the way, it will provide many more hours of entertainment. This book was hard to put down. I just kept saying to myself as reading, one more section, one more chapter, and yet kept reading when I should have put it down. I had to stop reading it at work because I would not want my break or lunch to end. The story is fast paced, the plot twists uncanny, the characters incredibly interesting and the concept chilling.

Will Burrows (pun intended I am sure) is obsessed with archaeological digs, a passion his father has encouraged. His father is the curator at the local museum and dreams of finding something to put his academic career back on track. But they dig in secret, hiding their tunnels and their finds. Will works on projects for his father but also has his own side digs in areas of interest for himself. And in some ways he feels more at home underground than above. But when his father goes missing, and Will discovers a mysterious tunnel and journal, he and his friend Chester go digging, looking for Dr. Burrows. What they find will surprise them and just might cost them their lives.

The greatest strength of the story is the uniqueness of the story line. The plot is so enticing. Discovering an underground world and civilization is not a new plot, but how this one came about, and its interactions with topsiders, is unique and fascinating. Overall it was an excellent read and I cannot wait to read more books in the series. (Note this book was originally published as The Highfield Mole.)

As a self-published author (Survivor Planet, The Key to Space), I've paid extra attention the past few years to other self-publishing projects. So I've seen everything from horrendous to professional level. The Highfield Mole blew me away. It's not simply professional level; it's outstanding. In fact, the editor who discovered Harry Potter put up close to a million dollars in advance to the authors to publish this under the title Tunnels. Of course, I obtained a copy of Tunnels as well and even this professional level of editing altered less than 5 percent of the book. The vast majority is original, showing just how good the self-published version is. So because you probably can't get a copy of The Highfield Mole (only 500 hardbacks and 2,000 paperbacks produced), you won't miss anything if you read the Tunnels version. Although the publisher is hyping this as the next Harry Potter, well, I don't believe that there will be another phenomenon like Harry Potter for a generation or more, if ever. But it's clearly going to be a best-seller when it comes out as Tunnels in the U.S. in 2008. And even though it's intended as a juvenile science-fiction/fantasy series, I think it will appeal to adults and a wider readership. It's an exciting beginning, and I can't wait to read more.

Once you get engrossed in this fantastic story, there is no putting it down! This book, and the US version that is about to be released, "TUNNELS," makes a great holiday gift, or gift any time, for the young Harry Potter fan who misses the HP series. It is a rolicking, riveting adventure and keeps the reader enthralled! Sure to be a big hit with readers, young and old.

This is an unusual book, with a gripping story accompanied by unique illustrations and drawings. It has a masculine overview and will appeal to pre-teens and young adults who enjoy a combination of fantasy, challenge and the unexpected. Young Will Burrows likes to search for artifacts in and around his home town, often helped and encouraged by his father who is curator of the local museum. But his father disappears. Will and a school buddy then find a tunnel on one of their digs, and follow it - down, down into a culture resembling their own but of a past era. But there is danger, too. Then they learn that they are going to have to descend further, and into the unknown interior of the earth itself to find Will's father. What else will they encounter? This book is first of a series.
